Don't do it, you'll get a kernel panic. The best way to update is to follow this method.


Below are the steps to update your computer to 10.4.*:


1) Open up the terminal and type "sudo -s" then "your password" then the following line by line:




cp /mach_kernel /old

cp -R /system/library/coreservices/loginwindow.app /

cp -R /system/library/extensions/AppleSMBIOS.kext /

cp -R /system/library/extensions/AppleACPIplatform.kext /

cp -R /system/library/extensions/AppleAPIC.kext /

cp -R /system/library/extensions/IOATAFamily.kext /

cp -R /system/library/extensions/system.kext /



2) Keep terminal open.

3) Open disk utility and keep it open

4) Run Software Update or download the file and run it.

But if you use the Software update :deselect everything but the 10.4.* intel update and install it



5) Open terminal and type the following:


cp /old /mach_kernel

cp -R /loginwindow.app /system/library/coreservices/

cp -R /AppleSMBIOS.kext /system/library/extensions/

cp -R /AppleACPIplatform.kext /system/library/extensions/

cp -R /AppleAPIC.kext /system/library/extensions/

cp -R /IOATAFamily.kext /system/library/extensions/

cp -R /system.kext /system/library/extensions/

rm -rf /system/library/extensions.*


6) Open disk utility and repair permissions for your OS X partition


7)Reboot {Remember this that after you restart, the computer might reboot and not enter the system,

But just let it do its stuff and let it reboot

and after that you have the new Version of 10.4.10 or 10.4.11 working and running.

I have it 100%.


just copy and pate the codes LINE BY LINE.. you can only update the kernel if you get the hacked version which can be found on IRC. once you have it just follow these steps after updating


1) Go to system>library>extensions and copy system.kext to the desktop

2) Open your update DMG and open the .pkg with pacifist.

3) Select system>library>extensions>system.kext (ONLY THIS KEXT) and click install.

4) Go to: irc.osx86.hu then #kernel the #1049 to get the link for the latest 8.9.1 universal kernel (use an irc client like colloquy)

5) Download the latest universal kernel, extract it, and rename it to mach_kernel instead of mach_sse2.

6) Put this kernel in the users folder (temporarily)

7) Open the terminal and type the following:


sudo -s

cp -R /mach_kernel /old

cp -R /users/mach_kernel /

(DO NOT DO IF YOU HAVE CORE 2) rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext

rm -rf /system/library/extensions.*


8) Repair permissions using disk utility.

9) Reboot and pray again... lol


again, just copy and past into teminal..


OR you can just install efi and then update.. but thats a whole different storry
